One of Liverpool’s best-loved daughters will be celebrated at a show in Weston at the end of love.

There will be a lorra laughs and no doubt a surprise, surprise a two when Cilla Black's career is toasted at The Playhouse.

While she was known for her television work on shows such as Blind Date, music was where Cilla was most at home.

Cilla & The Shades Of The 60s will look to remind audiences of her journey to fame and fortune.

The musical show will see the excellent Victoria Jones take centre stage, with the unenviable task of recreating Cilla's stage presence and stunning voice.

And she will be joined on stage by The Shades to make the audience feel they have been transported back 50 years.

A Playhouse spokesman said: "The show starts with the discovery of the teenage Cilla at Liverpool's famous Cavern Club and through a highly entertaining two-hour show of music and dance, stories and some delicious comedic moments, Cilla & The Shades Of The 60s presents a string of great hits by artists who changed the world of popular entertainment during that decade."

By the age of 21, Cilla was working with The Beatles' producer, George Martin, and achieved chart-topping success with You're My World and Anyone Who Had A Heart.

Hosting Blind Date for 18 years won Cilla a legion of new fans too, who mourned her passing in August 2015.

Cilla & The Shades Of The 60s will be staged at The Playhouse on June 25 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £23, are available at or on 01934 645544.
